The Conference “Innovation for Digital Inclusion”, organized within the framework of the official programme of the Polish Presidency of the European Union, is meant to provide:
- an overview of the most innovative and effective e-Inclusion initiatives in the EU and,
- in a wider context, to facilitate a discussion on the importance of the e-Inclusion policy to the delivery of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
This event is a great opportunity for both a practical level learning and for establishing a standard based on the good practices coming from national, regional and local levels.
Participants to the conference and representatives of the eCommunity (including the Big Idea, DAA workshop participants and MS e-Inclusion ad hoc group as multipliers) will write collaboratively a Gdansk roadmap. This would be a bottom-up process and a draft is to be proposed to Commissioner Neelie Kroes in mid-September for possible endorsement.
It is expected that the outcomes of the conference will also include an agreement between the partners from the EU member states to undertake a joint realization of a digital literacy promotion project.
